Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Pentyrch

Is the fact that my conveyancer in Pentyrch is not listed on my lender's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s conveyancing?

It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Pentyrch conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

Can you help? My Pentyrch lawyer is advising me that she is duty bound toconduct Pentyrch conveyancing searches due to the fact thatthe firm are on the Virgin Moneyapproved lawyer panel. Do I not have any say here?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Pentyrch conveyancing searches.

My grandmother passed away six months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the house in Pentyrch. The house had a relatively small loan left on it of around £5k. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Santander, pay off the mortgage. Is this allowed?

Given you intend to re-mortgage then Santander will require that you use a conveyancer on the Santander conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Santander conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Santander mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

I am helping my sister sell her property in Pentyrch. Will the conveyancing solicitor arrange an EPC or should I organise this?

Following the abolition of HIPs, energy assessments was left as a compulsory component of selling a property. An energy assessment should be commissioned in advance of the property being advertised. It is not as aspect of the sale process that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. Where you are using a Pentyrch conveyancing solicitor they might be able to arrange EPC’s due to their relationships with long established Pentyrch providers

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a 1st time buyer of a garden flat in Pentyrch. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Pentyrch?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be called to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Leeds Building Society. I assume I don't need a Pentyrch conveyancer on the Leeds Building Society panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Leeds Building Society mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Leeds Building Society mortgage from the register. Leeds Building Society, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Leeds Building Society has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Leeds Building Society has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Leeds Building Society mortgage has been paid off.

Various internet forums that I have frequented warn that are the primary cause of obstruction in Pentyrch house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Pentyrch.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Pentyrch I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Pentyrch in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
